Eagle Point-Grand Canyon...
Indranil_B
, Jul 2022
Eagle Point-Grand Canyon National Park. The tour guide was very lucid, had a good sense of humor. But the worst part is that you are not allowed to photograph while you are on the skywalk from your own mobile device. As a matter of fact you cant carry anything along with you to the skywalk. There are professional photographers there and you have to pay extra $60 minimum for the photographs. This is the worst part. Otherwise the tour is very well planned and worth the value for money.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Glad you enjoyed the tour experience. Yes, the Skywalk policies are a bit stiff, but it is in the interest of safety and preservation of the elements of the glass structure that is the reason. As we all know, nothing is free, and we have no control over the photo outlet and their pricing. Glad you enjoyed once again, hopefully with lots of wonderful memories. Please stay safe and healthy!

Time Is Your Enemy!
Dean_A
, Jun 2022
The journey to the Grand Canyon (& the return) was excellent, hugely informative & great fun, thanks to our driver, Wally. Hoover Dam was anticlimactic to be honest, as the photo stop was quite a way back from the dam itself. Being able to walk across it & look down onto the Colorado River, would have been far better. The Grand Canyon was breathtaking, though a few hours just isn't enough time.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Hello Dean, many thanks for your comments regarding your West Rim tour. The Hoover Dam stop is just a photo opportunity and normally is well favored as an amenity by our customers. Because of time requirements on this brief stop, we advise clients wanting to learn more about the Hoover Dam and Bypass Bridge to take our full Hoover Dam tour which operates daily each morning. It is an approximate 5 hour experience, so I am confident that you might realize that tacking 5 hours on to the West Rim tour would make for a very long day and would exceed driver's work time. We do offer a special discount of $5 for those wanting to experience the Hoover Dam tour following West Rim. Thanks for your comments and Happy 4th of July.

This was an excellent tour! Ken and Sharon were a great team. With Ken at the wheel we got there and back smooth and safe. Sharon was the voice and with her knowledge of the area we were well informed of all the sights and how to best spend our time at the canyon. She also kept us on schedule. The skywalk was amazing. The food was good. Don’t forget to add these options. Hoover Dam was a great stop with the opportunity to get some great pictures. I highly recommend Sweet Tours!

It was annoying but other than that great experience! Well Worth the value!

So much to see but too short a time
Maylene_M
, May 2022
I love the fact that we were advised that our pick up is on the way. I’m surprised when tour driver recommended to skip the first stop & just proceed to Grand Canyon. Wish it’s a day tour so we can enjoy all 3 location. We could have seen all 3 and also he asked for tip. We don’t mind but it’s nicer if we volunteer to give it because we are satisfied.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you very much for your comments, which are always appreciated to help us keep our customer service standards very high. I suspect the driver skipped the Hoover Dam outbound to avoid long lines at the Canyon lunch venues and the Skywalk. Please let us know if you did not stop at Hoover Dam on the return trip. Regarding the three locations, Hualapai Point has just reopened there and is currently a lunch stop only, and further attractions there are still in development. I assume you had lunch at another location. Regarding the tips issue, I certainly agree and will handle. Do you recall who the driver was? Thanks again for your important feedback and please consider coming back to see us again for another tour.

Enjoyable but a bit disappointing as it was too rushed we didn’t get to see all three viewing points as waiting for the shuttle buses was too long by the time we got our lunch it was time to get back to the coach as it was leaving at 1pm much too soon. Ann Green & Carrie Ann Earl
